MR. SANTANA: Come out for our first ever Mr. Santana Pageant next Friday, February 28 at 6:30 in our gym.  See our featured junior and senior guys strut their stuff and showcase their talents in tuxedos and outfits of choice and see who gets crowned “Mr. Santana 2014”.  The winner will win prizes sponsored by Friar Tux and many local businesses.  Guest judges include a City Council member, a local radio DJ, a local restaurant manager, and current reigning Ms. Teen Santee.  Tickets will be sold at the door, $3 with an ASB card and $5 without.  You will not want to miss this fun event next Friday. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE VARSITY ACADEMIC LEAGUE TEAM STARTING 5:  Richard Boyer, Anthony Martinez, Shane Jordan, Paloma Symmonds and Spencer Ford for defeating West Hills 114 to 70.  Mayor Randy Vopel was on hand to present Captain and team MVP Richard Boyer with the city trophy for the victory.  Also with their 9-1 record the Varsity team has claimed the League Championship for a second straight year.  Next up for the team is the All-Star match on Wednesday, March 5th at 3:30 in Santana’s library.

DRAMA CLUB: There is an important Drama Club meeting on Monday at lunch.  Grossmont College will be here during period 7 for a performance.  We need to discuss options as well as a possible May 1st school wide talent show.  See you next Monday in room 104.

PASTA FOR PENNIES: As we near the end of our Pasta for Pennies fundraiser, as it stands now, we have Ms. Thompson in first place and Ms. Crocker in second.  We will have until next Friday to donate money, so keep up the good work Sultans.

GYMNASTICS: Would you like to be a part of the gymnastics team?  Tryouts are coming up and we encourage anyone wanting to be on the team to come to tryouts.  We start on February 22nd.  Pick up a tryout flyer in the guidance office with Mrs. Wilkerson-Spenny.

CLEAN WATER CLUB: This is a reminder that the Clean Water Club meets each Friday at lunch in Room S-8. And, please keep recycling your cans and bottles in the tan containers in your classroom. Your recycling helps to provide clean drinking water for families in Fiji and around the world. Thank you.

PEACE WEEK: Peace Week is almost here. With that in mind, I would like to invite you to participate in our door decorating contest! Teachers, administrators, and staff are invited to participate! You may choose any period that works for you. The more doors, the more festive! Let me know what door (office, room #). If you don’t want to decorate, maybe I can persuade you to be a judge (you will have photos of all doors sent to you via email). Thank you, Ms. Sciacqua-Smith.

WORK PERMITS: If you are currently employed you MUST have a valid work permit on file. If you are under 18 years of age and working without a work permit both you and your employer are breaking the law! Please stop by and see Ms. Bingham in the front office to pick up a work permit application.

SPORTS CLUB: Love sports?  Join us every Wednesday at lunch for Sports Club.  Look for the sign in front of the gym entrance for the weekly sport.

PARKING STICKER: If you drive your car to school, you must obtain a parking sticker from Mrs. King.  Pick up a green application in her office, fill it out, have your parent sign it, and bring it back to her and she will give you a parking sticker.  Campus Supervisors will be issuing citations if there is not a sticker on your vehicle.

PEER SUPPORT: Attention students – Are you in conflict with someone on campus?  Do you need to resolve an issue with someone else?  Maybe you just need someone to talk to?  Have you witnessed others around you drinking, smoking, bullying, and cheating on tests?  Peer supporters have been trained to help you through those difficult times and teach you how to step up and stand up for what’s right.  Peer supporters can also help you and your friend in conflict resolve your issues and find peace again.  If you are in need of any help, stop by the guidance office and fill out a peer supporter referral form.  Peer supporters are here to help you everyday.

SULTAN SCHOLARS: The first fine list is out for 2014 and posted in the library.  Even if you think you have no fines, come in and check it out just to make sure.  Remember, the fine list covers all fines including sports equipment, textbooks, library fines, and lost PE locks.  Seniors, you especially should clear your account of all fines.  Come to the library for any questions.
